    Thanks for including Localtweeps on this list! All of our listings are user-generated (authentic) and down to the ZIP code level. It’s great for finding folks who truly are near you – especially in large metro areas. We also notify followers of @locatweeps when new tweeps join their ZIP, making it easy to build local connections. You can also follow tweeps directly from http://localtweeps.com.

    Local matters!
